As you probably have anticipated, things will look a little different when you return to the studio. We will be strictly following state, county and health official guidelines to keep our members and staff safe as we reopen. As the guidelines are adjusted, we will also adjust. We want to thank you for your patience and for helping us follow these regulations.
We understand that not everyone will be ready to come back quite yet, and that's OK! If you are not ready, we will still be providing online classes & private sessions so you can continue your Pilates/Movement practice with us in the comfort of your home.
Here are some new guidelines and protocols we are taking. We appreciate your willingness to comply with these new measures for the safety of all. With your help we can continue to serve the needs of our movement community at at time when we need each other the most.
Pilates Loft Studio is following theses enhanced procedures to prevent the spread of COVID-19:
Attendance Policy: All Clients will be encouraged to stay home when they are ill or if they are experiencing or exhibiting ANY symptoms of Covid-19 including shortness of breath, coughing, fever, weakness, fatigue, chills, sore throat, loss of taste or smell or other less common symptoms that have been reported such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.
Health Checks: Instructors and clients will have their temperatures taken every time they enter the studio to ensure that they are within a safe range as recommended by the CDC. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 F/38.4 C or higher will be asked to leave the studio immediately.
Cleaning/Disinfecting: Products: We have updated cleaning and disinfecting to involve a full disinfecting protocol of equipment before and after every session using EPA approved disinfectants and UV wands. Cleaning measures are being increased in between sessions.
Hand Sanitizers: Clients are required to use hand sanitizer upon entering the studio. Hand Sanitizing Stations are accessible throughout the studio.
Hand Washing: Clients and Instructors are being asked to comply with a strict hand washing and disinfecting protocol before and after every session.
Entry Policy: Clients are being asked to use the sanitize station upon entry to the studio and then proceed to the first bench on the stairs until instructor invites them into space to wash hands before getting on equipment.
Sessions: We are scheduling privates and duets only with one instructor in a room at a time. Sessions will include 50 minutes of instruction with 10 remaining minutes designated for cleaning/sanitizing/hand washing and client transition.
No-Guest Policy: Clients are being advised to arrange child care prior to their session as we will not be allowing guests onsite who are not participating in a session.
Equipment: The equipment has been rearranged to maintain at least 8 feet between clients
Mask/Glove Policy: Instructors and clients will be wearing masks and maintaining social distancing during sessions. Additional masks and gloves will be available.
Studio Equipment: Props: All props and supplies needed before, during, or after class will be provided by and put away by Instructor to minimize contact time with surfaces.
Air Flow: We have Hepa-Filter Air purifier running in each room all day while studio is open, allowing for pure air movement through the space.
Please reach out for any questions or concerns! And look we forward to moving together again soon.
